Server update, 2018-12-18

This release features four new reports of data that might need fixing. Pages with the MBID of entities that have been merged are now redirected to use the MBID of the merged entity. This release also includes a significant amount of bug fixes and updates genres list and external link handler. Thanks to coders G30rg3, TheFaR8, PROTechThor (all GCI students!) and dominikh for their contributed patches, and thanks to issue reporters bgstewart, cyberskull, jesus2099, hibiscuskazeneko, michelv, paulakreuzer, salo.rock, suriv, and wcw1966 for their input. The git tag is v-2018-12-18.
